Reviewed 27 May 2015

wow - as a kingsgate this place was pretty average. The refurb has really made a difference. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and have everything you need for a business or leisure trip. The new bathrooms have plenty of room and light. The water pressure is spot on. Will definitely use again

Stayed here last Friday as a last minute booking. Really impressed with the room, the comfort and the heat as it was a cold night. Great tea/coffee facilities and well priced mini bar. Close by to everything and had no problem parking in their big car park. Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends.

The superior rooms have been refurbished nicely, they come with a large good quality flat screen TV. Bed is super comfortable and I had a great nights sleep. Bathrooms reasonably large and clean. The rooms don't have any air conditioning, only a wall heater that doesn't have a fan, this however was more than ample to heat the room, though...

Stayed in a ! Bedroom across from the restaurant entrance for one night only. Room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Internet service did not seem to be available in the room, which was a bit of a drag. That said the people on reception were exceptional, both on arrival and on departure - thank you for your very pleasant manner....

The old Kingsgate Hotel (run by the Copthorne) was recommended to me as a cheap option for Massey students on a block course. The location is central, south of the square, next to supermarkets. The staff was nice. You will pay a bond for your room. There is no wifi in the old Kingsgate part of the hotel. You can...
